Help us Celebrate What Makes Southlake Special

UPDATE MARCH 12, 2020: Celebrate Southlake has been postponed. Read more here.

 

Join Mayor Laura Hill and her Alliance for Unity & Culture as they Celebrate Southlake, March 20 -22 in Bicentennial Park.

Celebrate Southlake is a community event designed to bring the people of Southlake together in celebration of our cultural diversity and inclusion that makes our beautiful city so special.

As Mayor Hill has said before, “I believe in Southlake, and I believe in anyone who is willing to stand up with me to make Southlake the best it can be.”

Celebrate Southlake events provide an opportunity and location to gather and have conversations that contribute to creating meaningful change and inclusion in our community all while enjoying food, music, performances and entertainment.

New this year will be three days of different events to help celebrate our great community. If you can’t make it to one event, there will be two other opportunities to celebrate with us!

On Friday, March 20, take some time to talk with Mayor Hill and members of her Alliance for Unity & Culture while enjoying a meal in Bicentennial Park, appropriately right on Unity Way.  The Community Dinner kicks off at 5 p.m. Sit side-by-side with your neighbors, taste a variety of world cuisines and feast on engaging conversation.  It’s a special opportunity to really break bread with your Southlake neighbors and get to know them. Sharing a meal is always a great opportunity to sit back, relax and take time for conversation. The Community Dinner gives you the opportunity to do just that while enjoying a variety of local cultural cuisines available for purchase.

Saturday, March 21, the fun moves to Aria Amphitheater and The Marq promenade to bring back the cultural festival that started Celebrate Southlake three years ago.  We invite you to “Travel the World” with us and visit cultural booths. While you’re learning more be sure to get your Celebrate Southlake passport stamped.  The passport will make the perfect keepsake to commemorate all the different cultures that make up Southlake.  When you’re not learning more at the booths, take in some of the cultural performances and entertainment. Some of the entertainment will include Indian music and dance, the music of China and much more.  Kids and adults will enjoy lawn games and various interactive cultural activities.

Celebrate Southlake wraps up on Sunday, March 22 at Champions Club with a family-friendly trivia competition. Teams of six will compete to answer questions and prove their knowledge of local and world history and culture all while enjoying small snacks and refreshments. Prizes will be awarded each round, with the last team standing taking home the grand prize.

We hope you will save the date and join us. This promises to be a special weekend so tell your friends and neighbors and we hope to see you there. For more information, please visit our website or give us a call at (817) 748-8019.
